“War Stories”

THE STARJETS – “War Stories” / “Do The Push” (Epic S EPC 7770) August 1979

The Starjets “War Stories” – The record that was almost a hit for The Starjets but despite an appearance on Top Of The Pops and Juke Box Jury (where the panel voted it a hit) nothing major happened.

Around the same time their album was released to mixed reviews and schoolgirl magazine “My Guy” featured them a couple of times with pin-up posters. In hindsight, “War Stories” is commercial pop and perhaps should have done better. The other side “Do The Push” is quite forgettable Bay City Rollers sounding fodder for pre-teens everywhere.
